A shared sign among adults with a learning disability is the seeming lack of control over the volume of their voice. It is thought, however, that this isn’t a result of a physical incapability to control it, rather it is the direct result of whatever subject matter the conversation is. Allow us to explain.
A person with a learning disability will often find themselves speaking at a lower volume when the conversation is about something they are unfamiliar with, uncertain of, or makes them feel uncomfortable. On the inverse, when a person with an LD is excited about something or about the topic of conversation, their voices will often noticeably increase in volume.
